ZephAir, a new mobile app on air quality from the Department of State, is available to all members of the public for download in Apple App and Google Play stores. ZephAir displays real-time air quality data from the Department’s 65-plus air quality monitors at U.S. embassies and consulates around the world. The app allows Department employees, their families, and American citizens living and traveling overseas easy access to standardized, reliable, and actionable information that can help mitigate exposure to air pollution. The app was developed by the Greening Diplomacy Initiative in the Office of Management Strategy and Solutions, with support from the Bureau of South and Central Asian Affairs.
